Satsang = Being in Reality Together

Come learn, LAUGH, find community, sing
and remember who you really are.

Satsang is a lively, ancient spiritual practice from India. People gather for a relaxed, “anything goes” conversation about the nature of reality, self-realization, spiritual life, and all aspects of human experience from the most ordinary to the most cosmic.

OUR SATSANG SCHEDULE

Shambhavi holds satsang every Sunday at various locations around the San Fransisco Bay Area. Kids are always welcome. Satsang is casual. Feel free to arrive and leave whenever you like. Check the website calendar for time and location information.

Exactly what happens at satsang?

We chant some chants. Then Shambhavi leads a free-flowing conversation during which people ask questions about anything. The conversation is followed by an open-mic, community kirtan jam.

Listen to Shambhavi talk about what happens in satsang:

What is community kirtan Jam?

Kirtan is call and response singing accompanied by musical instruments such as harmonium, drums, bells and whatever other instruments people like to play!

Our kirtans are relaxed and friendly. Anyone can take a turn at leading the singing—from experienced kirtanistas to beginners. The community joins in with drums, bells (kartals), and other traditional and non-traditional instruments. All styles are welcome. The emphasis is on having fun and experiencing the joy of singing together. We have a harmonium and loads of percussion instruments. Feel free to bring your own.

Please join us for these unique and inspiring evenings.

Cost: $15 Suggested Donation, or Give What You Can.
No additional donation required for Dashamamsha contributors or members of Milk, Ghee, Ojas (MGO).
